I am a beginner in SKILL, but anyway i like to write a simple script using the vhdlImport Skill function. Unfortunately i am failing with it. Could you provide a simple example ?
Kind Regards , Bernhard
I would suggest you log a service request via http://support.cadence.com . The documentation for vhdlImport() is rather lacking - it's rather imprecise about what is expected in the DPL argument, and it's not obvious how the vhdlin parameters need to be formatted in this disembodied property list.
I've never used this function myself, and hence to do not have an example to hand to show how to use this. Unfortunately I don't have time to research and come up with an example - so best if you file this with customer support.
Did you find anything helpful information on this command ?
I was searching for some automated way/command to import verilog file to symbol view. I thought this command might help.
Please keep updating in case you find anything useful on this.
Thanks & Regards,
If you're asking about importing Verilog, I'm not sure why you would expect vhdlImport would help (the clue is in the prefix, it's for VHDL not Verilog)? I suspect you want to use schInstallHDL instead (see the documentation for this function).
Yes, you are correct. I was looking for this command that import and compiles the verilog view.
Thanks a lot.
There's also the batch command cdsTextTo5x (from the command line) which does this:
cdsTextTo5x -lib AMSexample -cell mysimpinv -view functional -shadow mysimpinv.v
The -shadow is needed if you want it compiled (so that it has the netlist.oa file generated; that happens with schInstallHDL too).
